We've read each other's blogs, commented on posts, emailed tons of notes and mailed plants and seeds. Saturday, we met in person!
My wonderful husband and I packed the car Saturday morning for a road trip to visit new friends.
Melanie shares her garden and family adventures in her blog, "There's No Place Like Home." Check it out for inspiration and enjoyment. The gardens, the pond, the family. There is always something going on.
A warm welcome, a delicious lunch, a windy garden tour (wind will not stop gardeners from seeing what's growing), a plant swap, a tornado warning for the area (yes, we spent time together in the tornado shelter until the threat passed), a few photos after the storm (but still windy) and hours of conversation with new friends.
Gardeners are generous people. What they share beyond the plants, the seeds and the advice is friendship which reaches beyond their garden.
Thanks for everything Melanie. Here's to more garden visits.
